dc.description.abstract The design of innovative technological instruments and frameworks for smart energy management is a challenge for countries across the world, and the creation of a 'Smart Grid' still has unresolved research and development (R&D) problems. The design of optimal distributed energy resources (DER) is a promising approach for creating more renewable energy. In order to successfully implement DER, one must first consider several technical performance issues that would benefit from applied research. In this paper, a distributed autonomous energy management system (DAEMS) will be introduced. The DAEMS is envisaged to be self-organising, scalable and a reliable component for energy trading, client-side usage optimisation and DER management. Therefore the focus of this paper will be on creating a technical platform for facilitating energy trading, thereby creating an energy market and empowering consumers within the green economy. The creation of such technical platform can be achieved by formulating algorithms for client-side energy efficiency, and finding suitable methods for real-time DER management in terms of energy consumption, generation and connectivity. en_US
